One year before the presidential elections: The Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy, announced tonight (Tuesday) that he intends to initiate the impeachment process against President Joe Biden, following months of pressure from the right-wing extremist faction in the Republican Party to advance the move. In his announcement, McCarthy stated that he had directed the House committees to officially open the impeachment investigation against the president.

According to McCarthy, the committees will investigate President Biden's possible connections to his son's business dealings. His son, Hunter Biden, is accused of corruption. "In recent months, Republicans in the House of Representatives have uncovered serious and credible allegations regarding President Biden's behavior – a culture of corruption," said the Speaker. However, at this stage, there is no evidence linking the President to his son's business, and even if such evidence is found, the impeachment process may not reach a vote on Biden's removal.

The White House quickly responded to McCarthy's statement, alleging that it is a political move aimed at harming the President. "Chairman McCarthy doesn't need to cater to the extreme members who threaten to shut down the government if he doesn't initiate an unwarranted and evidence-free impeachment process against President Biden," said White House spokesperson Ian Sams. According to him, "the consequences for the American people would be too severe."

Despite the dramatic statement, in practice, this is only a symbolic step, and it is not expected to lead to the actual impeachment of Biden. Even if evidence is found, and the committee recommends bringing his impeachment to a vote in Congress, removing a sitting President requires a two-thirds majority in both houses of Congress. Currently, Republicans have only a minority presence in the House of Representatives, with 10 members, and they are also in the minority in the Senate.
